LEICESTER, England (AP) — Former England striker Kevin Phillips will retire at the end of the season, ending a 20-year career in which he became the only English player to win the European Golden Boot.

Phillips was the Premier League top scorer in 1999-2000 with 30 goals for Sunderland, a tally which earned him the coveted prize.

The 40-year-old Phillips currently plays for second-tier side Leicester, which has already won the League Championship title. He'll play his final match on Saturday.

Phillips, who also had spells at Crystal Palace, Watford, Southampton, Aston Villa, Birmingham, Blackpool and West Bromwich Albion, played eight times for England.

Phillips says "every kid dreams of playing for teams like Man United and Chelsea, winning Premier League titles, but I've certainly enjoyed my career and have no regrets whatsoever."
